“I am grateful to GUBI for their unique commitment and generous support. The world’s escalating conflicts and crises have created unprecedented global humanitarian needs. This unfortunately means that some crises are overshadowed by other higher-profile challenges and media headlines. Therefore, I am so thankful that the funds raised through GUBI’s limited Pacha design enable UNICEF to respond more equitably and support children living in ongoing humanitarian crisis, regardless of where they are in the world.”

PIERRE PAULIN

 

Legendary French furniture designer Pierre Paulin bestrode the 1960’s and 70’s with his recognizable and innovative style that instantly revolutionized everyday furniture.

 

A joyful modernist, Paulin’s low-slung pieces provided a new laidback perspective on life and his forward-looking, eclectic and sculptural approach to furniture design instantly caught the mood of the swinging 60’s. The hedonistic, sinuous style of Paulin’s design also attracted the patronage of presidents Georges Pompidou and François Mitterrand, who asked him to redecorate parts of the Elysée Palace in the 1970’s and 80’s.
